Pouilly Fume La Levee Domaine Bain 2015 (Skin Contact White Wine), biodynamic wine, rich, soft, mineral, stunning. La Levee is a skin contact Sauvignon Blanc made by a natural wine maker pushing the boundaries with his delicious examples of sometime mundane grape variety. Rich, round, soft, gold in colour with beguiling aromas of tangerine, spice, bruised fruit, and plenty more. Not for those who like green apple and crispiness but a Pouilly Fume with real depth, minerality and length.

The vineyards (4.9ha) are situated in Tracy-sur-Loire in the north of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation on south west oriented slopes mixed between Portlandian limestone and Kimmeridgean clay. A lot of work amongst the vines: pruning, debudding, leaf thinning, whilst neither pesticides nor artificial fertilisers are used. Travail du sol is effected with the aid of a horse. This method of working the soil, the vines, the grapes and the wine is based on ecological responsibility and the desire to create a wine that offers the maximum of pleasure. Which it does. The wine is vinified in cement. This is a lovely expression of Sauvignon with ripe kiwi fruit and a particularly tangy finish. There is more richness to the wines of domain Bain compared to those of his contemporaries. Rather than steeliness, Bain Sauvignon has a richness and depth not often associated with Loire Sauvignon. They are full bodied wines but also minerally and there is always a distinctive tangerine aroma.

    Tangy, delicious Sauvignon but with that little bit extra that you get from Orange wines. Loved it! Totally worth a punt if you're bored of classic Loire sauvignons.
